8.How is power restoration prioritised after cyclones?


Restoration decisions are based on the number of customers served by a particular device. We restore power to devices serving the most customers first. The specific prioritization order is as follows:I.Feeders are restored first, as they typically serve 1500 - 3000 customers.II.Tap lines are restored next, as they typically serve 25 - 50 customers.

 

9.Why do a few customers have power, while their neighbors remain out?


ustomers in the same neighborhood may be served from separate feeders. These feeders may be more severely damaged than the ones serving their neighbours' homes.

NOTE: Not seeing a crew does not mean a customer's situation is not being addressed. In outage situations, crews are diligently working to cut trees and restore lines and it is sometimes the case that power can be restored to areas without customers actually seeing a crew. If you notice damage to the meter base, that damage must be repaired before TSSPDCL's line and service staff can restore power to the home. An electrician will be needed to make the repairs.
 

10. Why are customers experiencing momentary restoration, followed by another outage?


Crews have restored power repeatedly to some areas because trees and tree limbs continue falling into lines, causing wide fluctuations in the number of customers without power.
 

11. When will the power be back on?


That depends on the amount of damage sustained and current conditions. Field personnel must complete a damage assessment before any reliable estimate can be made.
 

12. While my lights are on, they're dim. What's causing this?


This may be an incidence of partial power. At this point, customers should unplug large/major appliances such as refrigerators, ovens, air conditioners, etc., as this could cause a power surge and result in another outage. Once lights are bright, indicating full power has been restored, it is safe to plug in major appliances.
